is it possible to assign a start page dynamically to a user as he logs in NW04?
The background of my question is the following: I have a group of users who basically all use the same content in the portal, execpt for the start page and another information page that depends on which attribute is assigned to their user data.
Currently there are different user groups implemented in order to solve this problem. As the portal is supposed to be migrated we are thinking of using only ONE group for these users and somehow dynamically assign the start page and the info page to the user depending on its user data.
Is there a way of doing that without having to leave the standard functionality of the portal?
Thank you in advance for any input on this!
I'm a bit unsure about your request, do I understand you right that you want the first (initial) NavigationTarget being set dynamically, so that all users have the same role / pcd navigation structure, only that one or two pages (in fact one of them the first page shown after logging in) are somewhat dynamically?
If this is the case, you could reach your aim by different means. On the one hand, you could use merging, so that you have some (almost the whole) content in common, but some special content for role A and role B. If I understand you right, this is somehow what you have at the moment (by different groups, probably assigned to different roles), but you don't want this in the future.
The next possibility would be to have the different pages implemented as hidden pages and to call a self developed component which reads the user data and decides to which (hidden) page it forwards the request. By this, you would have the same role content / pcd structure for all users but you could dynamically decide which special page to offer for a certain set of pages.
Hope it helps
